Running a voiceover business we know how important social media is to its success. You know: Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Linked In etc.
I have met a couple of real life friends through Facebook. We have also made a good few business contacts (both as voiceover artists and clients) the same way.
But this week we met a potential business partner through Twitter. In real life. And there I was thinking no-one actually reads what is posted there. How wrong can you be?
Anyway Phil runs a video production company also in Woking so we met for a cup of coffee and a chat about the day-to-day running and the challenges facing media production and voiceover businesses. We exchanged ideas and discussed how we might be able to help each other - or indeed work together - in the future.
It seems to have become the norm for people who live and work very close to each other to meet through an international medium of the internet.
Even for voiceovers, its a funny old world isn't it?
